“The supplier award from Daktronics is really a partnership award. The success that we are both realizing is a reflection of our mutual commitment to innovation and QSi’s ability to deliver what Daktronics needs not only today, but also in looking forward to next generation materials,” commented Phil McDermott, QSi vice president of technology.

Operating for over 40 years, Daktronics has become a global industry leader as manufacturer and supplier of LED video displays and billboards, serving the sports/live events, transportation and commercial markets.

Daktronics has been a recipient of many industry awards, including the Stadium Business Awards, the Communicator Award and Best in Sports Technology Award, among others.

For nine years, QSi has worked closely with Daktronics in supplying encapsulating materials for their large screen LED video displays.

QSi’s compounds contribute to the durability of Daktronics’ display boards. Sensitive electronic components inside the LED boards are protected from harsh outdoor elements by using compounds to pot the circuit boards and encapsulate LED bulbs.

With a strong customer focus, QSi has been able to consistently provide both high quality products and service. Manufacturing schedules are thoroughly managed to meet requested delivery dates and products must always meet certain test and specification criteria throughout production and prior to releasing.

“Daktronics has always been a technology innovator and as a result, they are a market leader,” said Greg Wegener, QSi sales manager. “As a material supplier, it’s QSi’s goal to be responsive in satisfying their needs and requests.”
